'Leaf Fall' - The End of Life. Death is the inevitable end of all organic life on earth, including human life.
A man's death, however, is not the annihilation of his identity,
but only the destruction of his physical shell.
In order not to sorrow excessively over the loss of a loved one,
we should consider that physical death also has a positive aspect.
It brings man relief from his daily labors and from all the sorrows,
illnesses and fears which fill our earthly existence.
It is a passage to a better world, where eternal light shines,
where the truth of God reigns, where there is no grief,
and where the souls of the faithful find everlasting joy and peace.
These and similar thoughts will be our comfort when we lose people dear to us.
Their transfer to another world reminds us that our own end is approaching.
